Yeah so true. It's been a HELL of a wait for Rashad and I'm sure it's starting to really hurt his morale. And if he loses to Davis it's going to put him back to square one really. Maybe if he loses they can line up Shogun vs. Rashad.

Half of the blame goes to himself. He should have fought after he beat Rampage IMO. It's a tough sport and people get injured, out of all the people he should know that. Now he's been on the shelf for quite some time now and has a non-title fight after all.

Apparently I underestimated Nogs ability or maybe Davis isn't as talented as I had hoped. Luckily, we shall see soon enough

I don't even think it was right of Dana to offer Davis this fight. I have a lot of respect for Phil and suspect he'll be a top dog one day, but having just IDed his issues, I was looking forward to seeing him take some time off to better himself as a fighter. Stinks that Dana no doubt put him on the spot. It's not that I don't think Mr. Wonderful can hang with Rashad... it's that the man had literally just said he'd like to take some time away to work on his craft.

That, and they could have scrapped Shogun vs. Forrest for Shogun vs. Evans, which I'm certain would have got the fans talking.

All true but, I have a feeling that win or lose, training for and fighting this fight will do more to improve his game than anything else he could possibly do.

This is his chance. You can't always script your career. You fight.
Mr. Wonderful.

But only by decision..

So it begins. Jones/davis for the lhw title is inevitable. Here's hoping davis has what it takes to take out Rashad.

I wasn't real impressed by Davis in his last outing. I think there is more hype surrounding him than is warrented. That being said, I belive he will make a fight of it. I just feel Evans has more ways to win.

Rashad will hold him against the Cage Rampage style and win a decision.
